A Stiff Drink………and Chocolate

Navigating Daily Life, One Step at a Time…

5 Miles DOWN!

So yesterday I decided to take my first outside run. Of course, I planned this on a day where training wise, I should be running 5 miles. Not a 5k, but -5 miles-.

I wasnt sure in which direction around my home I was going to go, but I somehow managed it. Around the 5K mark I considered calling it a day since I was close enough to home that I could, but I really wanted to see if I could go the goal and in what time.

I’m rather stubborn that way.

I pushed on through the heat and sweat and soreness I felt setting in to my legs.

AND I DID IT! Even more importantly to me, I did it while still maintaining an average page of 12.57 minutes per mile. If I can do this at 5 miles, I can certainly do it at a 5k!

Thanks to my trusty Nike App, I knew where I was and how I was doing.

Then it was off to EPCOT center to visit with some family that’s in town and beat my body up some more.  Plus, it was some good testing for how race day is likely to be once it rolls around. 🙂
